What About the Drug Shortage Problem? (August 12th)
This past Friday, August 9th, STAT published my essay titled, "Presidential Candidates Aren't Talking About the Drug Shortage. They Should Be."
For all the discussion/effort this Congress concerning drug policy reform, moreover regarding excessive pricing there is none about worsening drug shortages (generally an under pricing problem) - and the related quality problem in the generic drug manufacturing sector. On the latter, see my July 17th interview with Katherine Eban concerning her recent, Bottle of Lies. Nor are any of the presidential candidates, at least to date, discussing.
